Join us for Cocktails for the Colorado: From the Couch; Colorado River Alliance’s first ever virtual gala and most important fundraiser of the year! For the first time ever, we will be delivering this special event as a live-streamed experience, giving you the opportunity to make a difference from the comfort and safety of your own couch or wherever in the world you may be! This will be an evening of FUNdraising and reflection that will make a positive impact on the future of OUR Texas Colorado River.

All funds raised will support Colorado River Alliance’s online & in-person education programs that teach today’s youth & community about the importance of protecting and preserving our Texas Colorado River. Our mission would not be possible without the enduring support from donors like you. It is your passion and commitment to our river that keeps this precious resource strong and flowing for years to come. Please join us for this impactful event! 

At the Colorado River Alliance, we believe that a healthy, flowing river is imperative to the well-being of our communities and our state. Our mission is to champion the long-term vitality of the Texas Colorado River through education and engagement. We dedicate resources, time, and energy to educating Texans about how the Texas Colorado River supports us and how, in turn, we can ensure the longevity of its health. Since 1994, the Alliance has been connecting kids to the river, teaching them about natural resources, and helping to nurture a generation of water stewards and ambassadors.

Thank you to our 2020 Gala Sponsors!
